Fahrelnissa Zeid (Turkish, 1901-91)
Nude Dance
gouache on paper
44.2 x 32.6 cm.


  • Provenance: UK private collection; acquired directly from the artist in the mid 1970s.

    The Matisse-style nude scene, with its swirling forms and colours, can be compared with figures in the background of Turkish Bath of 1943 (Parinaud, Andre, Fahr El Nissa Zeid, Amman, 1984, p. 68, no. 42).
